12:25 EDTKINGOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. There was little in the way of a catalyst, as the economic calendar was empty, though investors may have been encouraged that there was no breakdown in the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Gaza and no big headlines from the Russia/Ukraine border. Additionally, some may have viewed comments from Fed Vice Chair Fischer as dovish and in support of continued easing. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no significant economic data was released. In prepared comments for a conference, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said rebounds across advanced economies have been disappointing, leading the Fed and other observers to lower their long-term expectations for growth potential in the U.S. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Kinder Morgan (KMI) advanced 10% after announcing it will consolidate its oil-and-gas holdings into one company by acquiring all of the outstanding shares of a number of its subsidiaries, including Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Kinder Morgan Management (KMR) and El Paso Pipeline Partners (EPB). In addition to the rise in the shares of the parent, Kinder Morgan Energy shares rose 19%, Kinder Morgan Management gained 25% and El Paso Pipeline moved up 22%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was salad and banana producer Chiquita Brands (CQB), which jumped 31% to trade above $13 per share after Cutrale Group and the Safra Group proposed to acquire 100% of the company's outstanding stock for $13 in cash each. Also higher was electric car maker Tesla (TSLA), which rose 5% after Deutsche Bank upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold and raised its price target on the shares to $310 from $220. Among the noteworthy losers was social game maker King Digital (KING), which slid 3% after the stock was downgraded at Pacific Crest to Sector Perform from Outperform. Also lower following their earnings reports were Inovio (INO), which fell over 8%, and Gogo (GOGO), which dropped nearly 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 51.25, or 0.31%, to 16,605.18, the Nasdaq was up 38.19, or 0.87%, to 4,409.08, and the S&P 500 was up 10.12, or 0.52%, to 1,941.71.
12:05 EDTKINGKing Digital shares defended at Cowen

11:48 EDTKINGKing Digital shares weaker after Pacific Crest downgrade
Shares of interactive entertainment company King Digital (KING) are falling in late-morning trading after the company was downgraded at Pacific Crest. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors earlier today, Pacific Crest analysts downgraded the company to Sector Perform from Outperform, saying King Digital's "Candy Crush Soda Saga" will not drive a return to growth. The firm believes that the game's popularity may have already peaked and leveled off. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In light of their low confidence in the "Soda Saga" game and the current trends in King Digital's portfolio, Pacific Crest is lowering its 2015 estimates, although it expects near-term estimates in the third quarter to meet expectations. The firm believes that the company faces the same risks as other videogame companies and must be able to develop another hit game to sustain growth, and says growth forecasts are more difficult to achieve in the fourth quarter and beyond. PRICE ACTION: Shares of King Digital are down 58c, or 3.01%, to $18.71 in late-morning trading. Year-to-date, shares are down over 1.5%.
